Angélica Vale returns to telenovelas as "La Fan", an idea inspired by the actress' imagination. The Telemundo production is one of the network's biggest bets for this year with an all-star cast that includes Juan Pablo Espinosa, Gabriel Porras, Ximena Duque, Begoña Narvaez, Lorena de la Garza, Scarlet Ortiz, Miguel Varoni and many more. Episode 1 of the comedy airs on Tuesday, January 17 at 8pm ET/7pm CT with live streaming available through the Telemundo Now app.

"La Fan" revolves around Vale a cheerful, humble and simple woman, and a fan of famous telenovela actor Lucas Duarte (Espinosa). The lives of Vale and Lucas cross path one day; by what people could call a work of fate, luck, and magic. While she is hidden inside a giant pizza costume, handing out flyers to promote the business where she works, she believes she saves the life of her beloved actor, but everything is just part of a novela scene. That marks the first encounter between Lucas and Vale, but not the only one.

Lucas’ manager, Gabriel (Gabriel Porras) comes up with the idea of making a contest for all fans. And with a little “help,” Vale wins the contest. Extremely fascinated, Vale has lunch with Lucas. And this time, she ends up saving his life for real. And so Vale becomes Lucas’ personal assistant, his shadow, and his guardian angel.

Vale begins to know who the real Lucas Duarte is. His habits, obsessions and flaws and despite of that, she loves him more every day. Lucas begins to really know his fan. Her strengths, light and radiance. And, reluctantly, he begins to fall in love with her.

But every story has a past; a past that could transform this love story into an impossible one because even though they both ignore it, Lucas is the father of Tomas (Emmanuel Pérez) the late Lucia’s son. Tomas is a young boy that Vale is raising as her own since her friend died. Lucas turns out to be the recipient of Vale’s hate, for having abandoned her friend. Vale finds herself at a crossroads, divided in two, having to choose whether to listen to the cries of resentment out of loyalty toward her late friend or the love of the fan that she still is.
